...to the post about songs the band should never have played. Let me throw in Rollin' and Tumblin'. Absolute garbage. I sampled 2 versions and both were disgraceful.

I just listened to the two "Rollin and Thunderin" versions because I have nothing better to do except the dishes. I actually like the one at RFK 95-06-25 and if history evolved differently, it sounded like a tune that could have evolved well. Maybe you opposed because the performances were subpar? If judging from that perspective I would agree, but then again I would agree in hindsight that they should have been healing instead of being on tour in June/ July 95.

After listening and thinking the tune sounded alot like Minglewood, I googled and found this tidbit on wikipedia. No wonder...news to me anyway.

"The earliest recorded version is "Minglewood Blues" by Gus Cannon's Jug Stompers (Victor, 1928), credited to Noah Lewis who played harmonica in the band.[2] Hambone Willie Newbern recorded it as "Roll and Tumble Blues" (Okeh 8679, 1929). Other bluesmen recorded their own versions—such as "If I Had Possession Over Judgment Day" by Robert Johnson(1936)[3] and Rollin' Blues by John Lee Hooker".

Hear it straight from the source (and by source I mean the LMA, of course):

I haven't heard that one but a quick check at setlists.net shows they played it twice in June 95. Should I dare listen? Yes I will.

If no one voted for "You Ain't Woman Enough" let me add it here. WTFO. Today I went over to Utica, 73-03-22. The show was pretty good (and a good source minus several racks) until...words cannot describe.

It's mind boggling.
